Fredens Hus offers exhibitions on, among other things, abuse, human rights and the Swedish peace personalities Dag Hammarskjöld, Folke Bernadotte and Raoul Wallenberg. Apart from the exhibitions, Fredens Hus organises educational school activities and recreational activities for youth to work with issues concerning prejudices, racism, discrimination and violence. For more information, refer to the section, School activity, on the homepage.
The association is a politically and religiously independent non-profit organisation which was formed in 2003. Its objective is to, as a tribute to Dag Hammarskjöld, run Fredens Hus in Uppsala castle as well as compile and communicate knowledge on peace issues. The organisation should, with suitable educational methods, describe and discuss national and international peace work in a broad perspective. An important target group is the youth.
